after hearing only "Clocks" i bought this album, and i'm glad i did. for the first few listens, "Clocks" remained my favorite song, but then i listened a little more closely to the other songs. Now i basically just listen to the CD from start to finish. and then from the start again. perfect for indie rock fans. if you're hooked on the pop song structure, then this will be new to you and you might not like it. but if you have diverse music tastes, you'll love this CD for sure. i've never heard anything by Slant 6, and only one song by Quixotic, but i like the Casual Dots anyways. They kind of remind me of Sleater-Kinney or Cadallca with less rock and more indie-ness vibes.
